    Default I Passed My Rotorcraft-Helicopter Check Ride!

    This Spring has been busy with DC-3 Dreams so it took me a couple of months more due to only flying an hour a week, and no flying at all during May, but yesterday:


    ...check ride passed! Now I know how much I have to learn to become a real helicopter pilot!! My examiner is the real deal. I was HONORED to have flown with him, and I told him so after the check ride. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for valor in Vietnam, and there is much more. I'm one of those weird people with 300+ hours and only a Private license. I never flew for compensation or hire...

    Congratulations, Bob. Next to ACP (your second love), I know that flying is your third love. Or is it the other way around? What's next?
